The Mark Ward Split Melon sculpture is a smash. The project was created by South London-based graphic artist Mark Ward, who takes a punny approach on protective head wear. As Ward's website states, after growing up on a diet of MTV, his work, "combines surreal elements of pop culture with a truthful mundane undertone to create his own iconic visual language."
Using bright colors and elaborate details, Ward's piece is both visually appealing and eye-catching. The cleverly comical Split Melon sculpture is a visual appropriation of a common phrase.
However, just like the phrase, there is a deeper statement that is attached to this piece. The viewer sees the traumatic effects left on the bruised and bloody melon, and walks away realizing just how easy it is to damage.
